Profofiev's Romeo and Juliet - Montagues & Capulets arr. Paul Archibald
English Brass Ensemble cond. Paul Archibald
Probably one of the finest EBE recordings we made, it included some of the legendary names in brass playing - Maurice Murphy, Rod Franks, Malcom Smith, Richard Martin, Mark Bennett, Geoff Bryant, James Gourlay, Patrick Harrild, Robert Childs and Gary Kettel on percussion. Recorded in the wonderful acoustic of St Jude's, Hampstead Garden Suburb, London, it was sight-read and recorded in the last 45 minutes of an incredible session of brass playing. Definitely a career highlight!
